Wednesday was a good day. The boys and I walked to school with the dogs in glorious sunshine. No one complained about tired legs and we all got a few miles exercise in first thing. Has anyone seen ‘Losing it with Jillian Michaels’ on Style TV? She’s the USA Biggest Loser trainer and in this show she moves in for a week with families that need help to change their lifestyles. It’s quite emotional and I think pretty educational too. I heart Jillian!
Breakfast was a sandwich thin smeared with peanut butter and covered in banana slices all served up with a mug of joe. Hit the spot.
I met my Mum in the office of the church she attends, to design the advert for the classes I am starting there next week. There are going to be Zumba classes for church, family and friends. The folk at St Mary’s are always up for a good time so I am really looking forward to it. Caroline reminded me that Steve and I taught line dancing there many years ago – I had completely forgotten about that!
A good friend of mine is suffering with a sore arm at the moment and is frustrated at not being able to train as hard as she normally likes to. We met at the gym before our lunchtime Fitball class, to do a lower body workout. I spent about 20 minutes on the recumbent bike and then we did some barbell squats. That exercise makes me feel powerful. Following lots of other exercises (performed by my friend not me) we headed up to class. I’ve only been going to this class for about a month and in fact only started it because I wanted to learn more exercises on the ball for my own personal training clients. However I have fallen in love with it. It is challenging and peaceful all at the same time and I love the precision element of it. A little water and lunch break in the clubs garden followed and then I was off to Winchester to teach aerobics to upper 5th and 6th girls at a private school. I forgot to take pics of lunch but it consisted of a houmous and salad wrap with a big bag of baby carrots and icy soda water.
A quick nip home to pick up my children and then back to the gym for kids multisports (for them) and a gas with a friend (for me). The sun was still shining but boy was it cold! Another quick nip home to make dinner for the binlids and then I was off out to Running Club. My ladies surpassed my expectations this time – we ran a new route and they ran for a total of 16 1/2 minutes out of 30! They have been running with me for about 6 weeks now and this is a real progression. Flippin’ marvellous girls – well done!
Home again, home again, jiggity jig and time for dinner, finally. Thai rice noodles, chicken, broccoli and hoisin sauce topped with spring onions. Oh my word, perfection on a plate. Followed by two Nobbly Bobblys – my other guilty secret! A busy, perfect, Potter family day.
